Are you shopping for a large SUV that pulls no punches in terms of performance, technology, and interior comfort? If so, you might be considering the Yukon Denali — the topmost trim in the GMC Yukon lineup. However, the 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is coming to CDJR dealerships in summer 2021, and promises capabilities and features you’ll find nowhere else. Compare the Denali Yukon vs. Grand Wagoneer below, and see why Jeep fans everywhere are counting the days until the arrival of this new Jeep SUV!

Grand Wagoneer vs. Yukon Denali: Performance

The 2021 GMC Yukon Denali is available with two engines: a 420-hp 6.2L V8 and a 277-hp 3.0L Duramax turbo-diesel engine. Both engines come connected to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Drivers can choose between 2WD and 4WD. With 2WD and the V8 engine, the Yukon Denali tows up to 8,200 pounds.

The 2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer, on the other hand, was designed to directly compete with other full-size SUVs on the market. It’s offered with a 471-hp 6.4L V8 engine, which outclasses anything offered by the Denali line. This engine, coupled with 4×4 and an 8-speed automatic, can tow up to 10,000 pounds. What’s more, it’s available with three 4×4 systems, so you get the power and traction you need.

Grand Wagoneer vs. Yukon Denali: Technology Features

The GMC Yukon Denali is the Yukon’s top trim, offering features like an HD Rear Vision Camera, a 10.2-inch GMC Premium Infotainment System, and a Bose® 14-speaker surround system with a CenterPoint® audio system. It’s hard to compete with the Jeep Wagoneer’s tech, though. Here’s a look at just a handful of its technologies:

  • 12-inch touchscreen on the center console (runs on the newest Uconnect® 5 infotainment system)
  • 10.25-inch touchscreen for climate controls
  • 10.25-inch touchscreen for the passenger side, which has four major functions: Co-Pilot, entertainment, Fire TV for Auto, and freedom to view the feed from the exterior cameras
  • Apple CarPlay® / Android Auto™
  • 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot (supports up to eight devices)
  • Both second-row passengers also get 10.1-inch entertainment touchscreens, along with a 10.25-inch comfort display between the captain chairs
  • Top trim gets a 23-speaker McIntosh audio system with a 24-channel, 1,375W amplifier, and 12-inch subwoofers
